Sophisticated, onyx inlaid, modernist drape necklace from Mexico
A truly fabulous, Art Deco-ish necklace. Handcrafted in sterling silver and set with beautifully flushed pieces of onyx- a mark of old-school craftsmanship where no detail was too small to overlook. It is extremely comfortable to wear and the 'spikes' form a very flattering neckline. Sophisticated and contained but doesn't shy away from making a statement.
Composition: Sterling silver and onyx
Stamped: most of the 'spikes' have a 'STERLING' stamp at the back.
Measurements: Total necklace length is approx. 19.5" long (including the hook closure). The center-most 'spike' is 5 cm long, the shortest is 2.1 cm long, and almost all the 'spikes' are 0.5 cms at the widest.
Country of origin: Mexico
Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
